Two of the most forward thinking hip-hop producers in the game — Djemba Djemba and Mr. Carmack — have teamed up for a quick joint tour across the country, hitting up Wallplay in NYC this Friday, April 18th. Both producers are nearly peerless when it comes to flipping hip-hop, pop and experimental beat samples to create songs that sound smoked-out and otherwordly. Catch their Diplo & Friends Mix below where they drop the likes of Penthouse Penthouse, Kaytranada, Baauer and other floor fillers, bangers and bust-your-shit-open beats.
ATG spent a little time with one half of the co-headlining tour — Djemba Djemba. Originally from L.A., Djemba Djemba has spent the last couple of years contributing to Team Supreme’s beat cypher, and has released records on Mad Decent and his own imprint Rabbit Records. On top of remixing artists like Banks, Fiona Apple, Laura Mvula and Death Grips, Djemba’s music has been featured by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro and, as previously mentioned, BBC Radio. See what he had to say after the jump.
